Amash: We are here today for a simple reason. To defend the fourth amendment. To defend the privacy of each and every American. As the Director of National Intelligence has made clear, the government collects the phone records, without suspicion of every single American in the united states. My amendment makes a simple but important change. It

Amash continued 1: limits the government’s collection of those records, of the records, to those records that pertain to a person who is the subject of an investigation, pursuant to section 215. Opponents of this amendment will use the same tactic that every government throughout history has used to justify its violation of rights. Fear. They will tell you that the government

Amash continued 2:Amash: must violate the rights of the American people. To protect us from those people who hate our freedoms. They'll tell you that there is no expectation of privacy in documents that are stored with a third-party. Tell that to the American people. Tell that to our constituents back home. We're here to answer one question for the people we represent. Do we oppose the suspicionless collection of every American's phone records?

Amash: We are here to answer one question for the people we represent. Do we oppose the suspicionless collection of every American’s phone records. When you have the chance to stand up for American's privacy, did you? Please support the Amash amendment and oppose the NSA’s blanket surveillance of our constituents.

Crowley : That's how they found out about all of this about the mistakes that were made. Isn't that a sign actually that the system is working? That they looked and said holy cow, we really messed up on this and we messed up on that? Amash: No the system is not working. Americans were told by the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee that there were zero privacy violations and we know that's not true. Americans were assured by the president and others that the FISA court had significant oversight, and we've heard from the chief judge of the FISA court who says that's not true.

Americans have been told that their records have not been collected, that they had no data collected by the Director of National Intelligence and we found out that wasn't true. It's important to understand that even if all of the procedures had been followed there would still be a government violation of peoples’ rights a government violation of people’s privacy under the 4th Amendment of the Constitution because the records of every American in the United States are being collected without any suspicion.

Amash: Thank God for Jim Sensenbrenner who spoke on the House Floor in favor of my amendment who’s now bringing a bill to the House floor, the USA Freedom Act, to undo much of the damage of the Patriot Act. So, this is something we’re going to be working on. It’s gonna be introduced very soon. We need you to speak up, stand up, to call your representatives. i can’t tell you how much of a difference it makes when you call people in Congress. It makes a huge difference. It makes a huge difference. When people hear that their constituents are calling them, it changes their minds. I can’t tell you how many times I have been on the House floor and members of Congress are just talking to each other about how many constituents called them about a particular issues. it does make a difference.

Isikoff: hundreds marched on capitol hill today protesting nsa surveillance and cheering a fresh message from their hero in Moscow, fugitive ex-nsa contractor Edward Snowden. Pea party republican Congressman Justin Amash said Snowden opened America's eyes to what the NSA is doing. Isikoff: Are you grateful for what he's done? Amash: we wouldn't have the reforms for the NSA if not for what he did.
